| Shiraz driven red fruits of cherry and plum are lifted by cabernet aromatics of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and green olives. Fine silky tannins through the front and middle palate combine with flavours of blueberry, strawberry and olives. A beautiful combination of black earth, mushroom and grippy tannin linger on the finish.
This is a single vineyard example of the quintessential Australian blend of shiraz and cabernet. The 2010 Creation was the first opportunity to create this blend at Hentley Farm and the subsequent success of this wine indicated it should become a regular in our premium range, thus the Quintessential Shiraz Cabernet was born.
